Mary Ann,
   I would suggest also looking at differences in Northern and Southern 
attitudes, particularly on the East coast. Stereotypically the "South" is 
more conservative in many respects and I would think that career/life 
choices would rank high on the list. Women raised in the "Old South" may 
well have different attitudes than women raised in more Northern states. 
I would think also that women who are originally from Northern states may 
experience a real or percieved "bias" when chosing a career in a Southern 
state. Just a suggestion...
   Possible Universities to consider might be UNC-Chapel Hill or Duke as 
Southern representatives. I would discount Florida as it seems overrun by 
Yankees;)
